likelihood of any significant action. tax reform -- you will see a lot about this and next 48 hours as dave camp, the ways and means committee, unveils a very ambitious bill. lots of interesting features including a little surtax on the wealthy that might go against republican orthodoxy. he talks about maybe even nd income to abo surtax which is a very controversial subject. he would do away with a lot of safer tax breaks, as you know. this is something that has made most republicans very uneasy. they do not want to have attention drawn to anything that controversial. i would say the chances of tax reform this year are at best 10%. i'm being generous to even say that. next year with all ryan as head of the ways and means committee, things could change. then there is immigration. being an optimist who would like to see a bill, i think there is a chance that things could get a little more serious after the primaries. midsummer, when so many republicans are going to look over their shoulder to a right-wing challenger, i think immigration is totally off the table as an issue that could move. mi

and did not take into account a lot of other things in the law like tax credits were businesses are eligible. the report says -- let's go back a little bit -- it did not say how much it will rise but what determines of a small business will see an increase in rates? thet: this report looked at pre-affordable care act law and projecting out. it looked at one provision that involves how insurance companies rate for risk. the law before, insurance companies exclude people with pre-existing conditions, charge sicker people higher rates. older people could be charged more. what the law has done is taken out the pre-existing condition thank and it has narrowed the ages. you can still rates a little bit higher for an older person but it narrowed that split. it has changed the way that companies can price risk. host: so the premium is what we are talking about and what factors go into determining a premium? guest: it is still age and it is smoking status. insurance companies have to take all comers. they used to be able to exclude someone. was less expensive because you had more help th

is to give more money, tax breaks. but the way to help poor people to work harder is to kick them in the butt and their programs? why do you reward the wealthy to make more wealth and then encourage, supposedly, poor people to make more money by cutting them from money. explain the logic, please. >> don't ask me to do that because i cannot explain that logic because it's illogical. but there is a whole way of building up a infrastructure around people who are in poverty to make it easier for them to get work and for them to stay in jobs. that's providing health care, providing day care,el r early child education, nutritional programs for kids, and for their parents if they need it. family medical leave, you know, days off, paid vacation, all these sort of things that the poor don't have. transportation vouchers. because a lot of the working poor can't even get to the jobs. a center for budget and policy priorities put out a report saying even if you filled every job that was open today, you still have 2/3 of the unemployed without work. creating jobs is a whole another thing, but they don't w
